Support for Local Sport

The RUC provides financial and in-kind support for sports in the Inner North of Canberra.  We are big believers in the benefits of sporting participation and our aim is to make the Club a local hub for sportspeople of all persuasions to meet, socialise and get fit. We are very proud to support Lawn Bowling, Rugby Union, Cricket, Hockey, Soccer, Touch Football, Tennis, Water Polo, and many other sporting teams.

The function room can be provided for free or at a reduced price to charities or organisations that meet our criteria and raffle prizes can be made available for fundraising purposes. Email for more information.

Support for the Community

The RUC sponsors the Turner School Fete, providing financial assistance to the famous pizza stall, run by the Turner School dads.  Please get down to the Fete each year and support this fantastic local school.


The RUC is an environmentally friendly venue. We grow our own herbs that spice the dishes served in the grill and cafe, creating our iconic fresh and delicious taste.

All our light fittings use energy-saving light bulbs, significantly reducing the environmental impact due to the sheer amount of light bulbs in the venue.

We’ve also recently started moving away from using plastic straws to reduce our plastics waste.

The RUC is an accredited waste management and recycling business. The program inputs the best practice of waste management through a ten-step program reducing environmental impact.
